  1. Direct Plasma Production from Electric Solid Propellant for High Velocity Launch Systems

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: SB112002

    As an alternative to double-base propellants we propose electric solid propellants (ESP) as a safe, green, higher performance alternative to double-base propellants for high velocity electro thermal chemical (ETC) canons. These new energetic materials are inherently safe, with ignition only possible via the sustained supply of electrical power and not by spark, flame or even bullet impact. A maj ...

  2. GENNET: Advanced System for Synthesis of High Fidelity Social Networks to support SHIELD

    SBC: CARLEY TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: SB112004

    Our objective is to provide a semi-automated system to generate and verify scalable, high fidelity, multi-dimensional, social networks with realistic distributional, temporal and spatial characteristics. This will enable the user to generate networks varying in size, node attributes, geo-temporal characteristics, consistency with other networks, and reflection of known subpopulations, in formats u ...

  3. A Tool for Agent-Based System Produced Emergent Networks (ASPEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    Social network analysis is a powerful method for making sense of an increasingly interconnected world. Developing social network analysis tools requires datasets with which to test them, but sharing datasets is problematic because of privacy issues. Initial attempts to anonymize network datasets proved ineffective due to de-anonymization attacks that leveraged publically available information to i ...

  4. Pump for Vapor-Liquid Mixtures of Refrigerants

    SBC: Influent Corporation            Topic: SB112001

    Current cooling systems are limited by the heat carrying capacity of the fluid, which is in turn limited by the pumping technology to move the fluid. This proposal allows a much higher heat capacity in the fluid, due to allowing the fluid to go from a 5% to 95% quality within the cooling circuit, which is enabled by an innovative and unique pumping technology that will be developed in this proposa ...

  5. High Velocity Insensitive Launch Systems

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: SB112002

    Streamline Automation, LLC., is proposing a development program designed to explore the feasibility of achieving hyperkinetic launch capability with a novel electro-thermal gun concept. The new launch system will be insensitive materials compliant, will employ a highly efficient trigger technology which will simplify system design and operation and enable energy conversion efficiencies two to thre ...

  6. Vapor-Liquid Pumping through Integral Separation

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB112001

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) is proposing to develop a pump capable of moving a two-phase fluid against large pressure gradients. This pump will accept fluid at any quality and will maintain outlet pressure regardless of inlet quality variation. Pumping will be provided by conventional means with a prime mover dedicated to each phase. To allow for this, the phases will be passively ...

  7. High Velocity Insensitive Launch Systems

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB112002

    Systima is proposing to develop an end-to-end integrated solution to provide a high velocity, Long Range Ram Accelerator Mobile Field Howitzer (LRRAM-FH) system that will dramatically increase velocity and range capabilities over conventional artillery. The ram accelerator launcher will accelerate the projectiles to velocities greater than 2 km/s, which will extend the capability of modern kinetic ...

  8. Vapor-Liquid pump for Mixed Phase Refrigerant

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: SB112001

    Current refrigerant pumping technology lacks the ability to circulate a liquid-vapor mixture with substantial flow resistance, which impedes development and implementation of two-phase cooling technology. Common pump designs will hydro-lock and mechanically fail instantly or suffer performance loss and eventually fail due to cavitation or worn components. Mainstream"s solution is based on an exi ...

  9. High Fidelity Synthesis of Dynamic Social Networks using Measurement-based Calibration

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    We propose to develop a high fidelity approach of synthesizing measurement-calibrated dynamic social networks. Social network research needs access to realistic graph datasets for testing social network theory and developing network algorithms. However, the available social network data are either typically small or cannot be readily shared due to privacy issues. To address these challenges, a uni ...

  10. Hydrogen Based High Velocity Insensitive Launch Systems

    SBC: UTRON, Inc.            Topic: SB112002

    The objective of this proposal is to further explore and refine the use of hydrogen based propellants for use in high velocity gun systems. This proposal will build on the ongoing and very novel research being conducted with direct combustion of hydrogen-oxygen mixtures at high initial pressures. While the research performed to date has demonstrated the performance potential inherent in this app ...
